The special, which airs this Sunday, will focus on former Olympian Bruce’s transition from a man to a woman.

Understandably, the news is received with mixed emotions by his family, with his eldest daughter Kendall seen crying in the footage released ahead of the episode.

Kendall, 19, is seen struggling with her emotions as she says: “I just don't like when people say Bruce is gonna be gone.”

The sneak peek of the upcoming episode, the first of two, also features voiceovers from some of Bruce’s other relatives.

Kendall’s younger sister Kylie, 17, is heard saying she is keen to get to know her father’s female alter-ego, but only when he’s prepared to introduce her to his family.

"I do want to meet 'her,' when he is ready," Kylie said. "When we're both ready.”

Bruce’s split from wife Kris Jenner is believed to have been down to his decision to transition into a woman.

Bruce revealed his transition news in a hotly-anticipated interview with Diane Sawyer last month.

Speculation had been rife since 2013 that the former Olympian is set to change sexes.

And Bruce used the interview to confirm the rumours, telling Diane: “Yes, for all intents and purposes, I am a woman.

“People look at me differently. They see you as this 'macho male,' but my heart and my soul and everything that I do in life, it is part of me, that female side is part of me. That's who I am.”
